The program contains three of Boulez’ best known works from three different decades: Members of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra were led by Daniel Barenboim in the opening Messagesquisse and the composer conducting Anthèmes 2 and Le marteau sans maître. To have Daniel Barenboim as concerto soloist, with another conductor, is now a relatively uncommon occurrence, but Barenboim’s partnership with Boulez dates back to the early 1960s. Hilary Summers as soloist and the members of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra made this performance even more brilliant.
